 Father allegedly stabs son in fight over last beer

ROGERSVILLE — Police say a Hawkins County father stabbed his son twice in the leg with a kitchen knife during an argument over who would get the last beer in the house.

Friday night, Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office Deputies Wesley Seals and Sam Wilhoit were dispatched to the Hawkins County Memorial Hospital emergency room to speak to stabbing victim Brandon Justin Crabtree, 21, 117 Fugate St., Rogersville.

Crabtree told the deputies he and his father, Timothy Allen Crabtree, 45, 102 Bowlin Lane, Lot 5, Rogersville, were “having drinks” together that night at the father’s residence when they began arguing over who would get the last beer.
